DtlpaUK to Till DUN. London. June 24. A perusal of tho London nowspapers of both political parties almost forcesono to believe that n collision between the British and lioer forces Is Inevitable. It requires eomo Investleatloti to learn tlio fact that tho London presscannot be relledupon In thnpros ent situation to either fairly reprosont Knells!) public opinion or to tell the truth about Houth Africa. It Is safe to say that so lone as the pro vincial press does not join In the London de mands for war. and the Salisbury Cabinet. In cludinu Colonial Secretary Chamberlain, Is in cliarto of affairs, thero will be no hostilities In the Trunsvaal unless tho Boers dcllberatoly prcclpltato thorn It must bo admitted that the situation Is dnncerous, and crowlne worse rather than better, but tho crisis has not yet been reached When the crisis comes President Krllger must eoncede something of tho British demands. But It is a mistake to supposo that It will be necessary for him to surrender anything llko the minimum claims which tho bellicose Lon don press asserts will nlono overt war It is unite true that the British Government hns none too for to abandon Its wholo case, but everyone acquainted with Krucer's shrewd statesmanship Is ready to admit that ho will be wllllnc to make tonus with Ills nntasonlsts when the rlcht moment comes Tho real dancer Is that the shone war party in Knilnml may finally succeed In its policy of bounclnc the Government Into wsr against Its will This looks by no moans Imposslblo when the enormous lesourees and tho un scrupulou',ness of tho war party are consid ered It would not bo difficult In thn present situation to create nn Incident which would make n peaceful solution almost impossible. It Is still truo that Mr Chamberlain does not deslrswnr It Is an open secret that ho has nssured his Ministerial colleacues that all necessary reforms car. bo obtained from the Boer Government without flchtlnc Ho Btroncly held to that belief until a short tlmo aco Now ho is hcKlniiinc to fear that he hns undertstlmated tho Boer obstinacy A mls tako generally made Is that peace cannot bo disturbed except upon the Initiative of the British Government. It Is quite lost slcht of that the Boers have before now not hesitated to forco the pace themselves, and have hson justified by results. Thoy are Incspable of un derstanding thnt circumstances have changed. A despatch to the Central Nows from Ham burg says that altogether 00.000 rifles have re cently been tlespatched from that port for the Transvaal, and that German firms have also shipped 20.000 rifles from Trieste.
